Lameck Makwiriramiti, the Harare man who has made waves on social media, says he has no regrets about his actions at the funeral of a woman identified as Mai Tumba. Lameck seemingly broke tradition when he spoke about the deceased’s alleged misdeeds when she was being buried. Not only does he not have any regret, but he actually wishes he could have done more and said that he hoped the woman’s alleged evil acts are tormenting her in the afterlife.
Speaking to H-Metro, Lameck said:
I don’t regret what I did at the graveside and if I could, I wanted to stop the burial and get answers first. No one should tell me about defying any culture because they are worse than me; they should have followed proper channels after my girl fell pregnant. I wish the woman could rot in hell
I’m sure this evil woman is not resting in peace after the drama I pulled at her funeral. If it were not for the laws in this country, I would dig her from the grave and see her corpse rot,
…She took a wrong turn and that is how I respond, not even her death could stop me from exposing how evil she was.
He attributed his graveside speech to anguish due to the fact that the deceased had died before she could apologise for her alleged misdeeds. He also said that his intention was not to attack a person who could not answer for herself. According to Lameck, his intention was to speak the truth and expose the lies which were being said about the deceased’s life.
